Compensation Insights Platform

Lean UX in Agile Development

The challenge

Siemens Energy, a spin-off of the energy division from Siemens, needed a digital solution for their internal compensation process that works with a smaller support team than its former mother. Their vision was to unite their teams across the globe into a single, custom-build software user experience.

The result

With COIN - Compensation Insights- , we developed a scalable internal product for compensation by applying Lean UX processes, enabling Siemens Energy to intelligently link a wide variety of data streams and processes and merge them into one easy-to-use touchpoint.

Data driven decisions per default.

 

In order to obtain a holistic picture for a complex compensation process, COIN follows a data driven and decision making approach to create transparency and guidance when it comes to managing a fair compensation at Siemens Energy.

A design framework that fits user needs.

 

A design process embedded within an agile team environment with multiple stakeholders for us meant we quickly developed concepts and low-fidelity prototypes to check the usability and to match them with their business and product requirements.

One touch-point. Many cases.

 

The navigation concept and information architecture for COIN unites and harmonizes diverse use cases and flows — the result is a consistent and holistic user experience.

 

By reducing the amount of tools into one single user interface, we not just increased the acceptance by the users (managers and their team members), but also reduced the time and resources required for training.

 

A system built to scale.

 

In addition to the agile setup we created a scalable design system right from the beginning, which ensures that the concept phase and the design phase nearly blend into each other, while increasing the quality of the work output with every sprint phase.

 

The beauty of data.

 

With a project as data-driven as COIN, the representation and preparation of complex data, processes or structures was a particular challenge in regard to a successful UX design.

In addition to its informative character, the visual presentation must create connections and convey insights. Further it should evoke this special „WOW-moment“ without overwhelming or confusing the user.

Speaking the same language.

 

COIN’s complex product requirements and environment demanded a high level of involvement in the development team in an early concept phase in order to discuss and align technical feasibility, but also quickly loop ideas or to develop suitable alternatives. 

"Together with  FLUID, we were able to create the best possible user experience for COIN, allowing all different types of users to get information intuitively or handle self-service processes efficiently.“

Teamwork build for the future.

 

Working on such a complex product requires an agile, digital and disruptive mindset. The close collaboration with Siemens Energy and FLUID empowered a playground of vision thinking, decision making and consumer centering, driven by an interdisciplinary setup.
